Random AGP Update

E-mails have now been sent out to all subscribers. The email includes your current subscription page credit total, information on the status of Adventure Games Publishing, and a note about the release of Campaign Installment #2: 100 Street Vendors of the City State.

Note that I am unfortunately about three to five days behind on completing 100 Street Vendors; I hope to have an announcement of it being ready for sale no later than the end of the week.

One thing I will say... this is the LAST "100 This, That, or The Other" books I am going to be doing for quite some time! They definitely fall under the "biting off more than you can chew" category. This sucker is 64 pages, the high limit of want I can print with home publishing, and is at 8-point font throughout! At that rate, it is easily the equivalent of a 48 to 60 page normal-sized book by word count. From now on I am going to limit myself a bit more on how much I pack into a booklet... 32 to 48 pages at the most, or thereabouts, with 10-point font. Never say never, but...

Anyhoo, that's the current update. If you are a subscriber and did not get an e-mail from me, please contact me!
